Draggin’ at Englishtown
We’ll begin our tour of the NHRA national event at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ, with the sportsman ranks and then move to the pros.
Al Smyth’s ’68 Barracuda sports a 426 Plymouth engine. The Portatree-sponsored racer is from Uxrbridge, Mass.
How many times have these guys raced each other? Jim Pancake in his ’68 Dart against the War Fish ’68 Cuda of Charlies Wescott Jr.
Gary Wolkwitz made a short trip from Annandale, NJ, to enter his ’68 Dodge. The 426 c.i. Dodge-powered SS/AH car qualified with a 9.017, but at No. 71, didn’t make the 64-car field.
